This could by an erect bryozoan. I suspect that it is something similar to Flustra foliacea

Appreciate your comments. I know veery little of the proper names of plants and organisms in our ocean environment.

Thank you, Scott and Allie. I got them in about 35 fathoms of water. That is the first ones I got in that shallow. We usually get them in 120-150 fathoms of water on rocky relatively flat sandy bottom. they're attached to a small rock. guess they attach themselves to larger rocks, but they are not strong enough to bring up. so some of them comes up without any attachment. .
